I have made a few updates to my bike since I originally posted in the group last fall so wanted to post it again. Overall this bike is not a great bike but it shows well. I just have to work on a few things like find a better way to mount that front light.

Thanks! worked out pretty well for yesterday's 86 miler, though 38mm tires would have helped a lot in several areas with rough gravel

Spring loaded like the old Shimano bar ends, but ratcheted like Suntour.

Cannondale '85

Just finished rebuilding this one. Miraculously the Huret Dunapar works with Shimano indexing barends. I had planned to use a xt for the indexing but it wasn't needed.

Cycle Tourist is that the Eco duopar or the titanium version? i'm also wondering if those pivot bolt caps are acquirable. any idea? did yours come with it?

My 1986 Royce Union 12 speed with Peugeot decals

I didn't like that my 1986 Royce Union 12 speed was all black when I bought it new so I went to a bike shop and bought Peugeot decals.

I don't think it was the titanium derailleur. The pivot bolt cap came with it. There awful easy to lose though.

thanks, but i wasn't asking about the calipers...just the derailleur and that plastic cover over the securing/pivot bolt at the hanger.

i looked on ebay for the covers i'm asking about and there's two or three eco duopars that are advertised as coming off a 720. so, yeah....very likely yours is also the eco version. i was just curious. i have an eco and thought it'd be nice to have that cover. no biggie, though. thanks, again!

edit: lol....you edited!

You can tell the Titanium Duopars from the steel Ecos by the cable housing stop on the derailleur. The Ti version has a threaded adjustor, the Eco does not. From time to time you will see the plastic trim piece available on eBay, seldom at a reasonable price.
